History

The Don Carlos line from Arturo Fuente is among their very best. And when you make a cigar brand this amazing, that's really saying something. Utilizing some of the highest quality Cameroon leaf on the market, Don Carlos has been impressing aficionados for decades.

The Fuente name, combined with top Cameroon wrappers and fine Dominican long-filler tobaccos make this well-aged cigar a highly sought after commodity. Each exquisitely rolled specimen delivers flavors of nuttiness, sweetness, earth, and a very smooth black pepper through the retrohale. Enjoy it on it's own, or pair this one up with your favorite single-malt — either way, you're going to enter complete bliss.

Arturo Fuente Don Carlos received Top 25 honors for 2015 (#4 overall) and a well-deserved 94-rating, a 97-rating, and the #1 Cigar of the Year for 2017: "Its wrapper-to-filler ratios resulted in a perfect combination of the Cameroon cover leaf’s sweet-and-sour properties along with the Dominican binder and filler, which gave the cigar a zesty, nutty quality full of shaved almonds and candied orange peel."
